The UK should unequivocally condemn the recent executions in Saudi Arabia and the use of the death penalty.

In the last two weeks, executions have been taking place on almost a daily basis in Saudi Arabia – 144 people have been executed in the Kingdom this year alone, a record high.

We must use our close relationship to press for a change in approach in Saudi Arabia, calling for an end to executions and the release of Hussein Abo al-Kheir.
